is the foreign >> reporter: john mccain and kerry forged close bonds over vietnam. both naval officers, mccain was imprisoned. kerry returned to testify 1. his first appearance before this committee. >> how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in vietnam? >> reporter: decades later, they united as senators to resolve p.o.w. issues and normalize relations with vietnam. >> working toward that end with john and witnessing almost daily his exemplary statesmanship is one of the highest privileges i've had here. >> reporter: today, they do have differences. mccain is more willing to arm the rebels in syria. >> i think we ought to tell the syrian people that we're either going to help them or we're not. >> if you have a complete implosion of the state, nobody has clearer definition of how you put those pieces back together. >> reporter: he and others also pressed kerry on benghazi. >> are you willing to work with me or do you basically kind of agree hillary clinton that that's kind of yesterday's news and let's move on? >> well, senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and secr
clinton was side by side with senator mccain to introduce kerry as the best choice to follow in her footsteps. >> he's a determined and effective representative of the united states. has been as a senator, will be as secretary. >> and things were cordial enough moments ago. senator mccain was still blasting clinton for her testimony yesterday. >> she really didn't answer any questions, her response to senator johnson about whether there was a spontaneous demonstration or not, saying it didn't matter, it didn't matter how these people died? that was stunning. that was really stunning. of course it matters. >> all right, let's dive right in and say good morning to our thursday political power. mark ginsburg, joi ann reed, ron reagan, and republican strategist susan del percio. it's great to have you all here. as we speak right now, the confirmation hearing of john kerry is taking place. started roughly after 10:00 a.m. and this is a big difference of what we saw yesterday, ironically enough, this is the senate committee that kerry technically still chairs, and he made a joke about tha
, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don't bring rpgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. >> but the harshest criticism of all came from paul legacy, senator rand paul, whose ambitions and disrespect seem to know no bounds. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility, i think ultimately with you leaving you're accepting responsibility for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "ir
things that we see greater cooperation on. >> senator mccain. >> thank you. again, thank you for allowing me the honor of introducing you to the committee and i look forward to many of our spirited conversations that we have had for many years. i didn't want to bring it up but since it was brought up, i have to respond again. americans do care. they do care. they do care why four americans were murdered and they do care why the american people were misled. they were misled by the talking points that the sec -- that secretary rice told the american people which were false. they were misled when the information that we needed to know about how those talking points were put together, which we still don't know the answers to, many months later. we were misled when it was -- when we were not allowed to -- when we don't -- still haven't gotten answers why there was not better security at the consulate when there was clear indications of the threat. we were misled when we were not told that there was a request for the 16-member security force to remain at the consulate and were removed. the list
, indeed, more than 500. there was a point where i think we all wished john mccain had won because he made a few -- he made a lot fewer promises. we took the 500, and for the past but for years, in a product that i think is unprecedented in american journalism, we have been following them, calling people, tracking these things, digging into the budget, and really coming up with the definitive report card on how president obama has done in his first term. host: here is the obameter from politifact. 47% of promises kept, the total in the category for those pledges being kept or even in the works is 72%, 73%. guest: it is really a surprise, i think. it is hard to compare to anything because we did not apply the same methodology to previous presidents. but i have got to say, when we saw over the holidays that it was that high, we were really struck that, particularly in an era of dysfunction and gridlock in congress, that president obama had fulfilled or at least partially fulfilled so many -- as you said, 73%. we will talk more about why that is, but i think if you talk to experts who have do
ceiling. john mccain's decision, i support the decision. i think women are fully qualified to carry out the mission but i want to see the same physical standard requirements. nothing of the like of a change, women would have to fit the same requirements that are in place right now for men. what is your reaction? >> i think they're not too difficult to attain. young people whether they're men or women can quite easily attain the physical standards established for the forces. there are different physical forces for special operations forces, for rangers for s.e.a.l.s and so on. they're more difficult to attain but for infantry, armor, artillery units, i don't think women, young people have any problem whatsoever with them. >> i think it's interesting and people may not realize that women limited and i want to pull up the number. quinnipiac poll, should women be allowed to serve in combat roles? 75% say yes. 22% say no. also limited how far they could rank in the military. >> if you increase the number of women who are in combat roles, in combat units, you're by definition increasing the a
coming in. >> you do not. and senator mccain was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. john kerry was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. we know that the romneys will not be here today. as we watch, we're looking at the presidential car. and i've read they call it the beast because it is such a fortified machine, the president rides in. and here, he is ready to emerge for his second inauguration. >> and you talk about the day going so quickly again. talking to pierre thomas. this is a day of high anxiety for law enforcement officials. >> the trip to the capitol, many law enforcement officials call it the longest ride or so. we have law enforcement officials at command centers, are manning the surveillance cameras, talking to agents in the field. one source just told me, the only thing going on right now is a man in a tree at garfield circle. and they're trying to talk him down. he's trying to make some kind of political statement. >> that is wonderful to hear. and again, we're watching, we're looking straight through the foyer there, the marble foy
? >> 99% say their money is lost. >> so much for the nra. john nichols as a friend of bill. john mccain fugelsang joins us when we come back. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. [ music ] >> heard around the country and seen on current tv this is "the bill press show." >> bill: wow. 33 minutes after the hour. what a great date, friday january 18th. this is the full court press coming to you live from our nation's capitol. that's washington, d.c. >> that's where we are on capitol hill brought to you today by afsmee the largest public employee and healthcare workers' union in the entire country under pre
for four years. he was praised by hillary clinton, mccain, and elizabeth warren. >>> also, sunday it will cost you another penny to put a letter in the mail. a regular stamp will cost 46 cents. the raise comes as the postal service is barring billions of dollars from taxpayers to stay afloat. >>> it could be at least june before they determine whether criminal charges will be pursued. during the first meeting of the connecticut special advisory panel, the lead investigator said that prosecution is not on the horizon but it's still unclear who would potentially be charged. the panel's initial report on the shooting is due in march. >>> and days after lance armstrong's chilling doping confession, the latest in what could be scores of lawsuits has been filed. the california class-action suit has been brought by readers of armstrong's books accusing the disgraced bicyclists peddling lies. >> just beginning. >> oh, yeah. >> he's got a lot of money. we'll see how much he winds up with. >> how much he has at the end of it. >>> new york's ban on soda has drawn its share of critics but one
means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely smashing. understated but truly elegant. shepard: she has entered the crypt and come down the stairs. she will be announced as we she walks out. first lady will be followed by the president. let's listen as they make the now traditional walk. this is five inaugurations for me and walking down these st
've got some congressional numbers. congress, as john mccain likes to say, when congress is at 14% approval rating, they're down to close relatives and paid staff. >> i want to find the 14%. >> friends and family, that's all. >> 81% disapprove. and then on the republican party, 49% have a negative view of the republican party. just 26% positive. that's their highest negative number since back in 2008, the year president obama first got elected. democrats not doing much better, but better, 38% view the democratic party negatively. so gene, the president's had a pretty good time politically since the election. republicans are starting to figure out how to come back. to the extent republicans have leverage in the upcoming talks, particularly on fiscal issues, where do you think their leverage lies given how unpopular they are and how unpopular congress is? >> well, i think they have less leverage than some people think they have. i mean, i think it would be, frankly, another disaster if republicans try to use the debt ceiling, to force dollar-for-dollar budget reductions. i don't see
't say that. there is john mccain who knows something about losing to barack obama, he did it four years ago. but it strikes me -- i guess i was stuck to the degree that this was an unyielding and compromising of an espousal. i basically thought to myself that it was a poetic version of a speech he would make accepting the nomination of the democratic national convention, saying this is what i want and if i get to be elected, now, he has been elected and inaugurated, this is what i intend to do. bret: what you do is you go general. you articulate widely agreeable themes. there's actually some of the little bit more like the state of the union address specific sites of things that he thinks ought to be done. this was somewhere of a typical inaugural address and you may make general reference to programs but it's usually veiled in such a way that you are not accused of sticking your i in your critics >> we talk about how the party should come together. how they should not talk over each other. "the washington post" also had the communications director in which he is talking about legacy an
. if they seem dressed fairly lightly, there are some regional -- there's john mccain, dianne feinstein, there's some regional heaters in that area. there are blankets provided, as we heard. andrea mitchell is there. we'll keep alternating between this camera and the white house doorway so we don't miss a thing. and andrea, you're seeing the senate leadership fill in. >> yeah. just as senator kerry is coming in and some of the other senators, let me give you an idea of the schedule. there will be a change of power at the state department, as you know, on wednesday of this week. hillary clinton is going before the senate and the house. she's going to be here today in her role both as a former first lady and as the secretary of state. she's going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. on thursday before the committee that he chairs still, senator kerry will be introduced by secretary clinton for his confirmation hearing. we're told then that the vote on senator kerry as secretary of state is expected to glide through. next tuesday, that will take place. and wednesday, there will be the chang
at what a tremendous crowd this is. it just happens to not be as large as the one last time out. john mccain there wearing his shades. and then who is that, orrin hatch in the cowboy hat there? >> i can't quite tell. >> it's either orrin hatch or the lone ranger. >> you know, some of you may be curious about the flags that are hanging on the front of the u.s. capitol. but before we talk about that, here they are, malia and sasha, the president's daughters. malia now 14 years old and about as tall as the first lady, and sasha now 11 years old. that's their grandmother walking behind them, the first lady's mother, marian robinson. let's listen as they're announced. >> a little bit of a walk from where they were being held in the capitol out to the west front of the u.s. capitol. >> but as they go through that door, scott, it is truly the most spectacular sight in all of washington, because the mall opens up right in front of you. you can see all the way down to the lincoln memorial, even past the washington monument. you can see it all there. ronald reagan was the one who decided that they oug

the statement. >> senator john mccain there. senator feinstein behind him. >> mitch mcconnell was the one that famously said we immediate to make this a one-term president. there he is there at coffee this morning. >> he has since said that was a political effort and once that didn't come to pass he's completely reconciled to the fact he has to work with him and get business done. i could add, anderson, the president said because he's now re-elected he has been telling his aides that this is an opportunity almost to experience his inauguration important the first time. >> al franken on the right. >> because at first -- in the original inauguration, he was so focused on the financial crisis, economic crisis, there was a national security threat on the day of the inauguration, and -- they were consumed by the crises at the moment. they almost couldn't concentrate on what was happening that day. >> 20 years ago, bill clinton was leaving right at this moment, his speech writers were still with him. taylor got in the limousine and writing the speech over to the white house. >> wow. >> didn't e
